“We are so happy reuniting with Latifah,” said executive producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron. “We’ve been friends for a long time and we’ve had quite a lot of success together. To see her play the iconic role of the Wiz and make it her own is going to be one of the joys of producing this event.”
The director of NBC’s The Wiz, Kenny Leon SPILLED, “I can’t wait to watch Mary bring the badness that is Evillene. Her talent range is off the charts and I know audiences won’t be able to take their eyes off her.”
Yesterday, Mary demonstrated her excited for her upcoming role by tweeting the news to her 5.3 MILLION stans on Twitter.
The highly anticipated musical is slated to premiere on December 3.
